"And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light” - Romans 13:11-12
Most of us when we were children always heard, "Jesus is coming!" as if He was right around the corner and would be there any minute. The old patriarchs of Christ's church lived with that thought in their minds everyday of their lives, which prompt them to making sure their house was in order with a readiness to be called home at any time.
Now more than ever, the return of our Savior Jesus Christ is closer than when we first heard the news. A deep conviction of this truth should cause every professing believer of Christ to examine themselves, as to whether they are sincerely in the faith and keeping their house in order (II Corinthians 13:5).
Evil and wickedness is progressing everywhere without a care or conscience. Natural disasters and diseases are happening everywhere like never before. Folks within the body of Christ are playing the harlot, listening to false doctrines and living in sin like never before.
Will you be ready when your time comes to leave this earthly world - a day unknown to every man? Although most people don’t like to talk about “that day”, yet it is the one thing that is common to all people. It is a day we must realize will come to each and every one of us, and there is nothing we can do to stop it.
But there is something you can do – you can be ready, you can get your house in order and keep it in order.
